My Story

As a pediatric oncologist in academic medicine, I found myself wishing I had more tools to support myself and my colleagues through navigating our personal and professional lives.


Becoming a coach was the perfect path to achieve these goals. Through coaching I am able to partner with healthcare professionals to help them succeed and find joy in their purpose.

What does it mean to be a life and career coach for healthcare professionals?

I believe that all healthcare professionals have the capacity to seek out the positions or pathways that bring them meaning and purpose.


But I appreciate that often times navigating these endeavors can be difficult and time consuming. 

Life and career coaching is an opportunity to partner with a coach to achieve your goals faster and with more opportunity to reflect and grow as a person

"Hope" is the thing with feathers -
That perches in the soul -
And sings the tune without the words - 
And never stops - at all -

By Emily Dickinson
This poem has always meant a lot to me - partly because she is my namesake, but also because I feel hope when I think about how I can support and help others grow as a life and career coach.
